A shooting incident that occurred at the Naval Air Station in Corpus Christi, Texas, on Thursday is now considered to be terror-related.

"We have determined that the incident this morning at the Naval Air Station Corpus Christi is terrorism-related," said Leah Greeves of the FBI. "They are working diligently with local, state, and federal partners on the investigation, which is fluid and evolving."

The shooting, which took place around 6:15 am, left one security guard injured and the shooter dead. However, authorities now believe that a second person-of-interest may be at large.

The shooting suspect, identified by authorities as Adam Alsahli, drove through a security barrier early Thursday morning. Vehicle barriers were automatically deployed, which brought Alsahli's car to a stop. The suspect then exited the driver's side and opened fire before being neutralized by military police.

The security guard suffered only minor injuries and was released from the hospital the same day.
